The Nutrition Support You Need
This program is led by Jane Sylvestre, MS, RDN, LDN. Jane is a registered dietitian who specializes in bariatric surgery and can provide nutritional guidance before surgery and help prevent weight regain for years afterward. Bariatric Success is a virtual program. You do not need to worry about traveling to appointments, inclement weather, child care, work, or family commitments. You can have your nutrition appointments from the comfort of your own home. Her hours are also flexible and she will work to accommodate your schedule. She thrives on your success and will be there to support you throughout your entire journey!

Bariatric Success is led by Jane Sylvestre, MS, RDN, LDN. She has been a registered dietitian for over 25 years and has specialized in bariatric surgery for over 13 years. She has a master's degree in nutrition and food science and is working towards her doctorate in clinical nutrition at Rutgers University. She has won the Excellence in Practice Award from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Excellence in Nutrition Award from the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). She has the experience to teach you everything you need to know about nutrition before surgery and help prevent you from regaining weight afterward. She is compassionate and will be there to help you through the entire process. Her greatest joy is having you succeed in your weight loss journey! In her free time, Jane loves to downhill and cross country ski and has been an avid runner for most of her life. She completed eight marathons, and one marathon was run with one of her patients.
"Could never have done it without the support of Jane. Always there whenever needed. No question was too silly, never made me feel like I was doing something wrong, always there to help and make the journey a huge success!"
"Jane has taught me everything I know about nutrition, all of which I use to this day! Jane is the reason I have been and continue to be so successful in my weight loss and new healthy lifestyle. There is no other nutritionist out there! I personally am so thankful and grateful for Jane's knowledge!"
"There can be no doubt that in order to be successful with weight loss surgery you must change your relationship with food. This is where Jane Sylvestre has developed an expertise that was essential to my success. Her no-nonsense approach helped to get my brain and all its old habits in check. Without her essential guidance on proper nutrition and healthy eating habits, I would not have had the success I've enjoyed. Thank you, Jane!"
I am so grateful for Jane's knowledge and the information she provides to help guide me through the weight loss journey. Her support groups have kept me on track. She has taught me so much through our one-on-one meetings about nutrition and my relationship with food. I learned to use food as a source of fuel for my body rather than a way of coping. Jane has helped me feed my body and my mind.
I genuinely enjoy Jane’s support group meetings, exercise walkathons, hikes, healthy cooking demonstrations, and one-on-one nutrition appointments. Unfortunately, I take immune-suppressing medication for a kidney transplant which contributes to weight gain. Since my transplant in 2019, I have struggled with weight gain, so luckily, I have Jane to help me understand why. She is instrumental in getting me motivated and back on track. Jane is the best in her field! I highly recommend Jane Sylvestre to help anyone navigating through the difficult journey of weight loss. The quality of my life has dramatically improved, and Jane was a part of that. Kim Pratt
